Straight off a pretty fire set at last weekend’s Coachella, Flume is wasting no time giving new music to his fans. His latest track finds the 24-year-old producer linking up with none other than Swedish pop maven Tove Lo to deliver a shadow-slinging heart burner brimming with Flume’s signature production that ebbs and flows on the razor-sharp edges of Tove’s skin-searing vocals.
“It was kind of a funny one,” Flume tells BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac as to how the whole thing came together. “I went to see Kanye at the Hollywood Bowl and on our way back, we stopped off at a bar and I heard a track that she did. I think it was ‘Habits?’ I wasn’t really familiar with her stuff, but I really, really liked it…I Shazamed it…and basically my manager hit her up the day after and she happened to be in L.A. too and was down to write. So, all within about two days we got together and wrote that track.”
The result is nothing short of a slinky hit fated for those chill summer days ahead. The single is the second official single off his forthcoming sophomore LP, Skin, set to drop May 27 on Future Classic. Dip into “Say It” below and be sure to catch Flume in the desert for the second weekend of Coachella.
